Altrincham Golf Course , Cheshire has no shortage of competition, but the attention to detail and the improvements made have not gone unnoticed.
“People are surprised at the standards here; they are not what you expect from your usual municipal course. We just want the highest standards possible with the budget we have and we want to keep on improving,” Paul Murray Golf course manager told The Landscaper.
With a tight budget and restricted renovation time constraints, Paul has overseen a successful overseeding programme, investing in a quality seed – AberRoyal from British Seed Houses – as well as hiring a seeder to ensure a perfect application.
“We have been using AberRoyal for two-and-a-half years now and you cannot argue with the results
“We have cut down on nitrogen input and cut down on feed as a whole in line with using AberRoyal. The greens have improved year on year with better quality swards and we have virtually no disease at all.
“We did not have any budget for seeding, whether for greens or divot mixes, when I first came here but I have been able to build a small amount year on year. It is not a big budget but buying the right seed and hiring a seeder is money well spent.”
